4 telltale signs you’re becoming a Tito or Tita of Dubai

When a Filipino lands for the first time here in the UAE to begin their career, they are filled with overwhelming emotions of joy, hope, and the thrill of what the country has to offer – especially with their increased purchasing power with the huge salary discrepancy when compared to what they were earning.

However as years go by, you begin to realize the importance of each dirham you spend over the little things and become more conscious with how you spend your time. Here are a few signs that show how you’re slowly but surely becoming a Tito or Tita of Dubai.

Public Transpo, or even strolling over taking a cab

With so many taxis available at any time of the day, you used to get a cab to head to and from places that you frequently visit. But since you began to learn about the convenience of taking the public transpo, you now get to save more cash and even get to finish up that number of steps that your mobile app requires you to take every day to keep yourself healthy!

Sleep is life

Gone are the days when you want to party hard in clubs to welcome the weekends. You now prefer longer hours of sleep and just chilling at your accommodation, spending the day on Netflix or perhaps learning something new by watching videos on Youtube.

Circle of friends become smaller, but more loyal

You begin to notice that what was once a huge crowd of acquaintances become a more closely-knit group of people you can definitely trust. Sure – you still enjoy parties here and there, but you can only count those you can really depend on especially when you don’t really have family members to rely on here.

Saving for three reasons: Emergencies, Retirement, and Investment

Thinking about the long term haul, you have since learned to set aside money first before you spend the rest of your monthly salary. You now begin to set aside a portion for emergency funds and another percentage for your retirement in the future. You now even have funds that you allocate for your investments – may they be in the form of gold investments, stocks, property and more.

If you haven’t begun saving yet for your future or perhaps are still struggling to learn how to better manage your finances, the Philippine Property and Investment Exhibition (PPIE) will get you sorted out with free seminars that will guide you with experts on the field of investments, savings, and life advice in general.

PPIE is set to take place this coming April 26 – 27 at the JW Marriott Hotel at Deira in Dubai. Entrance is free to the public.
